I will email you a Contract for your African hunting safari. This contract must be completed and signed by all persons participating in the safari and e-mailed back to me / Richard Holmes Safaris as soon as possible together with your payment. The Contract can be seperately returned by each hunter or all on one contract. The 3 pages on the contract to be signed should be scanned or photographed and emailed back, but the other pages please type your info on and email back in a word document, which is same format in which you receive the contract from RHS. Richard Holmes Safaris - Richard Holmes Safaris cannot hold a hunt booking unless both of these conditions are met.
Proof of Payment
Next, proof of payment for your air tickets is required to lock in a booked date. Air tickets should be booked soon after booking, usuallly 10-12 months when you usually get the best rates, or at the very least least 6 months before the date of your hunting safari and sent to RICHARD HOLMES SAFARIS, or If you have booked your safari within a few months of your safari date you are still most welcome to get your flights booked and come on your safari booked dates.
